These parasites are perfectly hermaphrodite. Their generative
organs are well understood, and in proportion to the
size of the animal, the extent and complication of these organs
are astonishing. The male apparatus, the uterine cavity and
oviduct, the yelk forming glands, occupy by far the greatest
portion of the body.
Siebold says, "the female apparatus of the trematodes consists
of a germ forming organ (ovary), with its excretory
duct ; then two others for forming the vitellus, which have
also excretory ducts, and then a simple uterus with its vagina.
The male apparatus consists of testicles with their excretory
canals, an internal seminal vesicle, a cirrhus-sac, an external
seminal vesicle, and a penis."
